HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

Since its inception ten years ago, the Harbeth User Group's ambition has been to create a lasting knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless. Knowledge is human independent and replicatable. However, we live in new world where thanks to social media, 'facts' have become flexible and personal. HUG operates in that real world.

HUG has two approaches to contributor's Posts. If you have, like us, a scientific mind and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - decisions, and about the technical ins and outs of audio equipment, how it's designed and what choices the designer makes, then the factual area of HUG is for you. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and can be easily understood and tried with negligible technical knowledge.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings sub-forum is you. If upon examination we think that Posts are better suited to one sub-forum than than the other, they will be redirected during Moderation, which is applied throughout the site.

Questions and Posts about, for example, 'does amplifier A sounds better than amplifier B' or 'which speaker stands or cables are best' are suitable for the Subjective Soundings area.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters regarding what appears here. That said, very few Posts are rejected. HUG Moderation individually spell and layout checks Posts for clarity but due to the workload, Posts in the Subjective Soundings area, from Oct. 2016 will not be. We regret that but we are unable to accept Posts that present what we consider to be free advertising for products that Harbeth does not make.

That's it! Enjoy!

    I have found the problem . Im sorry it's my fault. I pluged a Zu Bok power cord. I din't know that afect that much for imcompatibility. The LFD run faster with it. Better stay with simple cable from the boxe. Hard to beleive, even others power cord i tested, it's din't match. So when u move your equipements, make sure it's still the same power cord for your LFD.
    After few hours tested , My wife are in love with it. Me to. it's superior to my Cronus. But the sound from my Cronus is more transparent and deeper, that touch the soul. Maybe it's tube effect. LFD Le IV, Voice presentation, and back ground instruments are clear with punch of the base, that why it's super. I think i will keep the Cronus for Midrange listening, like Classiscal, just need to get a new Harbeth compact and an LP.

    Thank for you guys time.
    The world of HiFi is soo big, 2 many speakers, 2 many AMPs, and Cables, the hard thing is the compatibility one with others... than the ears.. tube or SS.

      Good to hear that you've solved the problem even though i 've tried a few power cords with the LE III but found no change in speed but only a very very subtle difference in the overall sound.

      What you need most now is acclimatisation to the LE IV's forthright presentation. Its neither overly warm, sweet or subdued or laidback or forward....but as Gene Rubin & Sam Tellig says, it just sounds right! To me at least, my LE III not only sounds right but when combined with the wonderful SHL-5 simply takes the hifi setup out of the equation, leaving only the music where it should be.
